About Kerri Gibson
We live in Montreal during the week and spend most of our weekends in Orford. However, regardless of where we are we are fully available to our guests here on the platform, text, and telephone. Our goal is to make check-in/out and communication with us so seamless you don't need us. But we do love meeting our guests when we have the opportunity so hopefully we will get the chance to meet you in person!
Kerri Gibson purchased this Chalet in 2018
Why Kerri Gibson chose Orford
We used to live in this area and we were completely in love with it and wanted to share it with those who wanted a getaway from the city. It turned out that we LOVED hosting and all the people we got to meet so we ended up buying 3 of them!
What makes this Chalet unique
It is easily accessible to so many things like restaurants, bars, boutiques. Yet, you are surrounded completely by nature. There is something for everyone whether you are an adrenaline junkie or a wine connoisseur. I can't imagine anywhere more perfect for those that want a break from everyday life.

Fantastic chalet and stay
Property is as advertised. We had a great time... Although the density of the chalets in the community could raise concerns. It was calm and peaceful. The interior was perfect for us, very clean and all necessary kitchen tools were there. The Provincial park only 1km away was great for us for trail running and Marathon training and a nice change from the asphalt of New York City! What a jewel of a park. The outside patio was great too and attached to the kitchen so a breeze to get food in and out. With had no issues and communications with owner were flawless. Highly recommend - would come again.
Lovely chalet in a quiet community. Really relaxing and comfortable, well-suited to a family. My kids were very taken with the hygge aspects: soft blankets and pillows, stylish and cozy. We will be back!
Excellent Chalet to stay at
Great location, fully equipment and more and the owner is excellent to deal with.
Heavenly Chalet in the Woods
Our stay at Kerri and Philippe's chalet could not have been better. It was an incredibly restful property in the woods, with wonderfully comfortable beds and thoughtful amenities that were far above the norm. We brought along a (tree-friendly) hammock and spent hours listening to the birds and wildlife in the woods behind the chalet. The neighbours in this chalet community were also super-friendly, frequently stopping to chat with us when we were out walking our dogs.
Chalet Finland is an ideal home base for exploring the virtually limitless biking and hiking trails in the area. Kerri was extremely helpful in suggesting trails in the area which we would enjoy. We would have missed out on so much, had we not asked her advice. We also brought our kayaks and spent many happy hours paddling in Parc National Mont-Orford.
When we rent properties, I always bring along a basket full of personal supplies that I can't live without: decent knives, a frying pan, a skillet, a cutting board, aluminum foil, parchment paper, sugar, salt, pepper, olive oil, vanilla, etc. This is the first time EVER that I did not even unpack this basket. This chalet truly had everything we needed! I agree with a previous reviewer's statement: just bring spices and you're good to go!
When we saw the tempertures rising for our week at the chalet, we were concerned that we might be too hot in this non-airconditioned property. However, the chalet stayed magically cool, especially on the main floor. This is likely because of the tree canopy shielding the chalet from the sun. Opening the windows at night provided all the coolness we needed, although each room is does have a fan, just in case.
Chalet Finland was a truly special property, and Kerri and Philippe are exceptional hosts.
Wow! Ryan, thank you so much for the amazing review. I am so happy that you guys had such a wonderful time at the chalet. Your family was just as wonderful to host!
Just as perfect as the pictures
This cozy chalet is in a cute neighbourhood, with close access to everything. Nicely renovated, super comfy beds, well equipped kitchen (bring your favorite spices - everything else is perfect for cooks). Hosts are great with communications, super friendly and attentive. We were six, our family, grandpa, grandma and our family dog and we would have stayed another week! Highly recommend ❤️ Thanks Kerri & Phil
